Follows on closing of U.S. embassies this Sunday in face of feared al Qaeda attacks.

But don't worry, unlike you Obama will be well protected from al Qaeda on his Martha's Vineyard lux vacay this month.

Terrorists carrying MANPADs may be safely ignored. < /s>

Full text of warning:

The Department of State alerts U.S. citizens to the continued potential for terrorist attacks, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa, and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arabian Peninsula. Current information suggests that al-Qa’ida and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August. This Travel Alert expires on August 31, 2013.

Terrorists may elect to use a variety of means and weapons and target both official and private interests. U.S. citizens are reminded of the potential for terrorists to attack public transportation systems and other tourist infrastructure. Terrorists have targeted and attacked subway and rail systems, as well as aviation and maritime services. U.S. citizens should take every precaution to be aware of their surroundings and to adopt appropriate safety measures to protect themselves when traveling.

We continue to work closely with other nations on the threat from international terrorism, including from al-Qa’ida. Information is routinely shared between the U.S. and our key partners in order to disrupt terrorist plotting, identify and take action against potential operatives, and strengthen our defenses against potential threats.

We recommend U.S. citizens register their travel plans with the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy through the State Department’s travel registration website. We strongly recommend that U.S. citizens Traveling abroad enroll in the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). STEP enrollment gives you the latest security updates, and makes it easier for the U.S. embassy or nearest U.S. consulate to contact you in an emergency. If you don’t have Internet access, enroll directly with the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.

For the latest security information, U.S. citizens traveling abroad should regularly monitor the Department of State’s Internet website at travel.state.gov where the Worldwide Caution, Country Specific Information, Travel Warnings, and Travel Alerts can be found. Follow us on Twitter and the Bureau of Consular Affairs page on Facebook as well. Download our free Smart Traveler app, available through iTunes or Google Play, to have travel information at your fingertips.

In addition to information on the internet, travelers may obtain up-to-date information on security conditions by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll-free in the United States and Canada or, from other countries, on a regular toll line at 1-202-501-4444. These numbers are available from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm Monday through Friday, Eastern Time (except U.S. federal holidays).

this is like a hollywood movie. A group of bad guys attack prisons, release the other bad guys with nothing to lose and they kill Americans..

This is why the mooslimbs will never win. We celebrate our religious holidays and go forth to spread the good word through deeds of charity and good will. They spend a month steaming about something that happened a thousand years ago, say a prayer, go forth and drench themselves in the blood of innocent people.

The only people that fear the United States are it’s citizens.

This doesn’t pass the smell test. The regime is giving few details why these embassy closing are taking place, only that it’s on an as needed basis. Being so adept at showing what the right hand is doing so you won’t pay attention to the left, this sounds like a distraction away from the newest Benghazi revelations. They’ve been caught with their pants down once again, so they put on a new pair to show off.

Who was that guy - was it Krispy Kreme? - warning about the next attack where thousands of Americans die like it was a foregone conclusion? He was defending NSA when he made that statement.

GWB did not kill Osama because he did not want to make Osama a martyr. Obama proceeded to make him one of the greatest Islamic martyr’s of all time. And they did not stop there. They came, They saw, and they Killed Ghadaffi. Then they tried to assassinate the leader of Syria. Now a Seal Team is dead, a US ambassador is dead and terrorists are attacking the streets of Boston and the streets of London. Oh, and we have to close all US embassies in Muslim territory and the Russians have changed from neutral to an enemy. Great job Emperor Zero and Hillary the Great. So will WWIII officially break out before or after Obama leaves office ?

Got it figured out - save the tape. They will use a false attack/warning to validate the whole steaming NSA public monitoring scheme blowing up in hearings now. Dammit! I hate it when I can think like these b@$t@rds. I see Barry and Nancylighting cigars while discussing this.

FWIW: Rep. Peter King on Geraldo's radio show this morning (it was a weak moment, sorry) said that yes, it's real; he's not privy to divulge what he knows about it at this time, but that he agrees this warning is necessary. He also indicated that'll we'll all likely find out in the next week or so.

Yes the Muslims are winning, Americans dare not yet mention such things. So now for August I’ll probably get some extra good groping at the airport.

I’ll go commando and ask for special treatment, that way I can win a little too.

I have seen reports that indicate that the State Department (Hillary) was giving the Rebels the Javelin Antitank / Smart Mortar System which is Top Secret and some of the Russian’s newest MANPADS that were captured from other sources as part of a deal that when the Rebels won they would return them.
The CIA was there to recover ALL of the weapons that the State Dept. had sent them so that they could send them to Syria.

If this is true then that is a very big violation of American Law and TREASON on the part of the Hitlery Beast and Obuma including anyone else who was in on it.

The Javelin System is a Fire & Forget weapon that never misses! It can be fired like a Mortar or as a Antitank weapon and it can even take out low flying Helicopters.

The new Russian MANPAD is also extremely good and can knock out our Helicopters & Planes. Which means that if a rescue had been sent in they would have been shot down with American & Russian weapons given to them by the State Dept. The Obuma did not want another Blackhawk down scenario being played out just before the election so he let them die so he could win his second term!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I heard a top-of-the-hour news brief about this story.

What annoys me is that they played a clip of Nancy Pelosi discussing this, not Boehner or Cantor.

Why?

Was House Republican leadership not available, or is this subliminal MSM bias to minimize giving Republicans the appearance of leadership and make Americans believe that Pelosi is still running things?

Is Obama doing this so he can have more people at his birthday party? I find this timing somewhat odd. Perhaps Obama needs to recall everyone for them to sign nondisclosure agreements over Benghazi.

I just watched the video you posted and it definitely firmed up my belief that this whole closing of the embassies is a way to get the NEW Benghazi revelations from coming to the light of day with the Left media. Especially when it was stated that closing usually came from the Ambassadors themselves and this one CAME FROM WASHINGTON.

I caught part of an interview with a congress member on TV, and they tried to cover it up by saying: this is the new procedures after Benghazi. (paraphrased)
